COVID-19 Updates & Information

In order to keep our congregation safe and healthy, we ask everyone to follow the procedures below:

  • If you are ill or have any symptoms of COVID-19, please worship from home. 
     

  • If you are experiencing symptoms or have had exposure to large groups of people, we encourage you to be tested.  Affordable at-home test kits are available online or at local pharmacies.
     

  • In light of the current rise in COVID-19 cases, we are encouraging everyone, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a mask during Sunday service.  If you need a mask, they are available in the foyer.
     

  • Communion will be offered only in-person during the service.  The clergy and those assisting with Communion and altar prayer will be wearing masks during Communion.  
     

  • Bulletins will be available on the table as you enter the Sanctuary.
     

  • A box for tithes and offerings will remain in front of the Sanctuary; we will not be "passing the plate" at this time.  You may also make a secure online donation at www.churchofthemessiah.org/donations.
     

  • Sunday worship will continue to be livestreamed on Facebook; those not on Facebook can view the service on our church online worship page. Those livestreaming from home may come by the parking lot after the service (before noon) to receive the reserved sacrament to take home.  You may also contact the church office to make arrangements to pick up a supply of the sacrament during the week.

Thank you for your cooperation!
